CZBG Bowyer Farm was willed to the zoo in 1995. At the time, the 529-acre farm was given with the guideline that it could never be developed unless it is to further the mission of the Zoo.

The farm is now 600+ acres, and includes: wetland restoration, native plant sales & propagation, beekeeping, animal feed harvesting, cheetah run area, sun and sheep farming.

The farm grows many species of native plants and hosts annual plant sales, along with offering "The Zoos Best Plans for Pollinators line that can be purchased from various nurseries. You can also find more information about the "Plant for Pollinators Challenge" and register your garden through the read more link included in this event post. 

The wetland at Bowyer Farm is a place to find hundreds of native plants and learn about the importance of wetland ecosystems, along with bird watching.

The presentation/ program with Brian Jorg will be during the tour, not a formal presentation.
